At Alpha Bravo First Aid we know that there are a lot of options when it comes to choosing where you learn CPR. That's why we make a great effort to make sure you have the best learning experience possible. Below you will find our five pillars of a great CPR trainer.

Being a CPR instructor requires a unique set of skills and qualities. Not only do CPR instructors need to have a thorough understanding of CPR techniques and protocols, but they also need to be able to effectively communicate and teach those techniques to others. Here are five key traits of a great CPR instructor:


A great CPR instructor should have a deep understanding of CPR techniques, protocols, and best practices. This includes knowing how to properly perform CPR on adults, children, and infants. The instructor needs to be familiar with the latest guidelines and recommendations from the American Heart Association.

PATIENCE CPR can be challenging, especially for those who have never done it before. A good CPR instructor should be patient and understanding and be able to clearly explain concepts and techniques in a way that is easy for students to understand.

COMMUNICATION In addition to being patient and understanding, a good CPR instructor should also have excellent communication skills. This includes the ability to clearly and concisely explain complex concepts, as well as the ability to effectively engage and motivate students.

EMPATHY CPR can be a stressful and emotional experience, especially for those who are performing it in a real-life emergency situation. A good CPR instructor should be empathetic and compassionate and be able to provide support and encouragement to students who may be struggling with the material.

ORGANIZATION CPR instructors often work with large groups of students and must be able to effectively lead and organize those groups. This includes being able to create a positive and engaging learning environment, as well as being able to manage time and resources effectively.


Overall, a great CPR instructor should be knowledgeable, patient, communicative, empathetic, and organized. These traits will enable them to effectively teach CPR techniques and protocols to their students, and help prepare them to save lives in emergency situations.
